Helmet head

They say your either a Aria head shape or a Shoei head shape . In my case its Arai . Ive tried may different makes but
nothing comes close to a perfect Arai fit .
Has anyone with a Arai head , found another make that is similar . I have yet to try on a Bell helmet .

I'm half way between an L and an XL in the Shoei, haven't tried Arai but am XL in a Bell RS-1 and custom 500 open face, no help but just tryin to ad some activity around here. Also L in a shark Vision R and L in Kabuto Aeroblade III. 
Seeing as I can't fit into a Shoei maybe I'm an Arai head? Must try one on one day, still looking for a hat that's actually quiet, probably doesn't exist though.

The XL Shoei fits me really well, my last 3 helmets have all been Shoei. 

I've tried Arai helmets on as well the last 2 times and they feel great except the chin piece is way too close to my face and I feel claustrophobic when thee visor is closed

Although I like the fit of my Shoei I still think I'm better suited to HJC.
My nose touches the visor in Sharks and many others aren't deep enough and leave my chinny chin chin exposed. Smile

I've had Arai and Shoei and feel that a helmet should be a firm fit from new and forms to your head over a short period.  
Currently,  I have an Aldi shaped head and two years in am still as happy as can be.

I was the same for most of my riding life Gus. Nothing but Arai.  Then one day in a store I thought I would try on the new Shoei NXR.  I couldn't believe how good it felt. Plus it was supposed to be very quiet. I got it for a good price so I switched brands. For a while.  Then one day I spied a nice Arai Corsair. ( I had had a Corsair before ) Bought that . When I tried it I can honestly say that for me, on my bike, it is quieter than the Shoei. And just as comfortable. Mind you. I already knew how comfortable Arais are.  Also did a small stint with a Shark. But was never really 100% happy with it.  Horses for courses.
